Image result for Egypt: Fans return as stadium reopens six years afterSix years after Egypt’s worst soccer disaster, supporters of al-Masry sporting club in Port Said have finally been allowed to re-enter the local stadium.

Security was heightened as hundreds of fans flocked to the stadium wearing the green colours of al-Masry and chanting for their side.

Fans of the local club were banned from attending games after a stadium riot in February 2012 killed more than 70 people.

The soccer stadium deaths came at the end of a match between Cairo’s Al Ahly and al-Masry and have been a flashpoint for protests across Egypt.
